Animal Anomalies: PufferCat

Biologists believe the puffercat, also known as the blowcat, developed their famous “inflatability” because their laziness makes them vulnerable to predators. In lieu of escape, puffercats use their highly elastic stomachs and the ability to quickly ingest huge amounts of food to turn themselves into a virtually inedible ball several times their normal size.
